Last week he introduced a bill to amend the US Constitution. The bill would overturn the US Supreme Court’s January 2010 ruling in Citizens United v. FEC and to make clear that corporations are not people with rights under the US Constitution.

“The Citizens United ruling,” McGovern continued, “marks the most extreme extension of a corporate rights doctrine which has eroded our First Amendment and our Constitution. Now is the time for a 28th Amendment that lifts up the promise of American self-government: of, for, and by the people.” If passed, this would get unlimited funds OUT of the election process. Our votes might even count more than the money!

We urge you to call your congressman and support Congressman McGovern’s legislation. The main number is (202) 225-3121. While you are at it, call Jim’s office and voice your support. It’s a brave move on his part!

Attacking the power of big money in politics is indeed a brave move.
